The 9.5 million-ton Liberty dragline, shown here on Friday at BNI’s Center Mine, will be trailered to a new location on the mine site. Draglines are normally “walked” to a new location, but the trailering method will cut the time it usually takes to move the mining giant from days to hours. It will also diminish environmental impacts.
